Health Minister Molwyn Joseph says he is in the possession of pictures and videos that show persons committing litter infractions over the Easter weekend.
Minister Joseph who was speaking at a recent press conference says his ministry is taking steps to deal with the offenders.
“Over the holidays, I received some videos of illegal dumping and we have photographs of trucks and their license and registration with transport board and I can assure the public that we will use the current act to apply the necessary sanction of those culprits.”
The Environment Protection and Management Act 2019 was recently passed in both houses of parliament.
The act provides for a hefty fine to be placed on persons found to be illegally dumping waste.
There is also a percentage of the fine that goes to the reporter.
